I am an associate professor of philosophy at Duke Kunshan University and associate professor of the practice of global studies at Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Duke University.

My research lies at the intersection of philosophy of mind and philosophy of religion but I am interested in many other areas of philosophy: metaphysics and epistemology, philosophy of science, experimental philosophy, and ethics. I also teach computer science courses and am developing pedagogical tools to teach philosophy through computational concepts.

I received my Ph.D. (2011) from Cambridge University in History and Philosophy of Science and received my B.A. (1998) and M.S. (2001) in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and U.C. Davis.
